Does this mean the dealer is working with you to get you a different Frontier?
I get the start-up rattle, more often than not.For those who have bought a 2010 truck, has anyone experienced any engine knock or noise? I may get another truck, but I am checking the odds.
I inquired on this today when I was talking to the service mgr, he said its supposed to do it. I cant remember why exactly...I get the start-up rattle, more often than not.
That's about a $3000 hit? Ask to talk to the general manager and see what he says. If they sell you a new one at cost and give you the holdback you would be even closer. I wish you lived in NJ as I am very skilled in negotiating cars and enjoy making them squirm during a sale. See what they say and if you think it will have any effect tell them this saga is being read across the country and you want them as well as Nissan to look good.
I sit here and think why should you pay one cent more to get exactly what you already have? What's their opinion on that statement?
Why would you go there and spend valuable time and be asking about an exchange unless there really IS something wrong? Who would waste the time unless at wits end?
Did they diagnose an engine defect? Why not repair now?
If they keep you driving it and racking up the miles the truck will lose more value and the trade in book drops in value by age as well.
I know you're upset over this and not looking to make it worse by bringing all these questions but I'm starting to get pissed off over this and it's not even my truck. If it was there would be a very ugly meeting there. I have a temper and people tend to scurry away when they are around and I boil over. You bought what we bought but you're not enjoying it as we are.
Good luck on getting this resolved.
On the enigine knock they just said it sounded abnormal. This being the same audio you guys have heard. Wanted me to come back at my next oil change which is about 1k. and do more checking, then drive more I guess. I wll talk to the gm Tell him my side & see how it goes from there.OK, it's at cost minus holdback so how much less is it than your current trucks purchase price?
Next since the 2010's aren't in the used truck price books what are they saying it's worth?
They can fix it and sell it without losing.
You didn't respond. What did they say about the noise in your engine?
Try not to get angry (difficult) when talking to them but it does help. Remember always talk to a decision maker not a middleman. The GM can make things happen or go above his head and demand to speak to the dealerships owner. You'd be surprised what they can do if they want to.
Hey, this feels like a coach giving a pep talk to the team.
Now go out there and come back with a new no cost to you truck! Good luck.
To be honest it sounds like all the oil drained out of the engine, and oil pump has to reprime itself.I inquired on this today when I was talking to the service mgr, he said its supposed to do it. I cant remember why exactly...
To OP, what type of deal are they offering you on the other truck? Unless its a strait across type of trade I wouldnt do it. Does this mean the dealer recongnizes the problem?
You bought the exended warranty correct? You could just keep driving the one you have and if the engine dies in 40k you get a new one.
